Hands-on UX Workshop


m:lab East Africa will host a hands-on UX (user experience) workshop on 8th December 2011 from 10 am to 1 pm at the iHub.
This workshop is a follow-up to a recent Wireless Wednesday event that focused on User Experience research for startups. The event will be a practical step-by-step session testing the usability of mobile applications.
The event will be led by Bridget McGraw, who has been working on user interface designs since 1994 and is intended to help developers increase the usability of their products.
As such, interested participants will need to have a functional mobile application that they would like to test.
We will offer two levels of attendance: “Product Owners” and “Testers”.
If you would like to participate as a “Product Owner”, kindly send:
  1. A screen shot of your application,
  2. 2-3 sentences describing your project, and
  3. A task that you want your user to perform using the application
Please send these three items to no later than 12 Noon on Thursday, 1st December 2011. Approved applications will receive an invitation to register for the event.
If you would like to participate as a “Tester”, please send an email expressing interest to
